“The piece captures antlion hunting strategy perfectly. The sand pit by itself is only a partial trap; most insects can climb out on their own. But not with the predator churning sand and hurling debris.
Warning: a switcheroo in ant species between the intro and the close-ups will be a little jarring for taxonomists.”
